In an effort to help our managers and coaches comply with our safety standards, the Board of Directors have put forth a mandate of safety rules to be followed as outlined in the DBALL 2018 Safety Manual.
Each team will also appoint a Team Safety Officer (TSO) who will assist the manager and the designated coaches of that team to insure that the safety guidelines are met whether at practice or during a game.
The commitment to this Safety Manual is proof that we at DBALL are dedicated to our cause. Please read it carefully from cover to cover, as it will familiarize you with safety fundamentals. Then use the manual as a powerful reference guide throughout the season.
Always remember that safety rests with all of us, the volunteers of Delray Beach American Little League. Please use common sense, never doubt what children tell you, and report all accidents or safety infractions when they occur.
Now, play ball and play it safe!
